Took mother to dctr today
My SIL and I took mother to the doctor today. The doctor suggested several things. Mother's memory is gradually getting worse. The dctr is trying her on Namenda for AD. Never heard of that one. Said it may help but there is no cure. She asked if I was interested in some type of in-home care -- hospice. I told her yes. She is going to send someone out to talk to us to get that set up.
The dctr is also checking to see if anything is out of whack that could be contributing to the memory problems - thyroid, potassium, etc.
The dctr and my mother hit it off. Wanted a hug from mother before she left.
Don't know how things will go from here. Will have to wait and see. SIL very supportive. Told me to get some rest - which I did this afternoon. Back to work tomorrow.
